EARTH, SPACE AND MARS
AlgaStar, is a commercial development staged company producing revenues since 2018. The company focuses on the cultivation of patent-protected algal and other microorganism biomass technology under development with assistance by Los Alamos National Lab, NASA Kennedy Space Center, Florida A&M and Applied Research Associates (ARA).
During 2015 to 2018, we competed and won over $250,000 in New Mexico Small Business Assistance (NMSBA) grants to help develop the BioStim™ electromagnetic biostimulation system at Los Alamos National Lab (LANL). Additional NMSBA grants for BioStim™ are expected in 2020 at LANL.
In early 2018, AlgaStar won a highly competitive State of Florida-funded, 20-month, Renewable Energy and Energy-Efficient Technologies (REET) research grant for $399,000 with over $600,000 in added matching contributions partnering with: Florida A&M University, NASA at Kennedy Space Center and ARA Labs, a leading US R&D/engineering firm. BioStim™ has been successfully tested at Florida A&M to increase selected algae growth by over 600% in just 6 days of electromagnetic stimulation. This spectacular achievement in biostimulation research of microorganisms is the first known development in turbo charging the growth of algae with rare earth magnetic energy that could:
- Focus on studying the cause and effect of electromagnetic energy utilizing our BioStim™ electromagnetic biostimulation research system for turbo-charging growth rates while growing cyanobacteria and microalgae into valuable biochemical products.
- Utilize a supply of waste water nutrients from sewage treatment plants as a free nutrient resource for biomass production.
- Be used for future Earth, Space and Mars biomass production of pure oxygen,
fuel, food, nutraceutical and pharmaceutical products to sustain our growing civilization.
